Choir of the Moscow Patriarchate
Russian Folk Songs

Down the River Mother Volga
O the steppes
In the dark forest
The bell tolls
Snow fall in the street
Steppes, only steppes all around
O, the sweet night
Do not reproach me, do not blame
The troika-mail is running
Fade, fade
The legend of the twelve highwaymen
The young man has flown like a bird
Evening bell
Guelder rode
Along the river
Dark eyes

The Patriarchal Choir, Moscow was formed in 1983, and consists of professional singers, both men and women. The choir take part in the services of the Moscow Church of the Resurrection, basing its work on old Russian choral tradition, from the 17th century to works of bortnyansky, Rachmaninov and others. The Choir began touring abroad in 1987. "Folk Songs" features 17 a cappella songs; some of our favorites are "Down the River Mother Volga," "In The dark forest," "The bell tolls," "O, the sweet night," "Do not reproach me, do not blame," "The troika-mail is running," "Along the river" and "Dark Eyes." There is tremendous depth of feeling here; wonderful solos supported by solid background harmonies. A powerful and moving CD!
